honest question: what's the point of shipping jalec if it's never gonna happen? are you shipping out of fun or just for the heck of it?
I noticed that at least one of my mutuals got a similar ask so I’m side-eyeing you anon but I’ll answer anyway.
okay so by “never going to happen” I assume you mean that we’ll never get to see jalec be a couple in canon. but to be quite honest I don’t see why I wouldn’t ship jalec just because “it’s never gonna happen” on the show or in the books. the concept of shipping something non-canon isn’t weird to me because I don’t need a ship to be canon to be able to enjoy it. jalec isn’t the only non-canon ship I ship and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
what I love about non-canon ships so much is that you get to explore the relationship on your own and wonder what it would be like if it was canon. plus you get to enjoy all the amazing fics, fan art, fan videos etc. sometimes it’s even better to ship a non-canon ship cause that way you don’t have to worry about canon ruining the ship. like for example would I like to see a jalec kiss on the show? ofc I would! but would I like to see it if it was like the jalec kiss scene written by cc? oh hell no.
the main reason I ship jalec, however, is simply because I think their relationship is the most interesting one on the show and in the books. I’ve read the tmi books and even though jalec’s relationship isn’t nearly as well portrayed in the books as it is on the show, I still became a jalec shipper the minute I started discovering their relationship. I love that they have so much history together and they’ve basically known each other their whole lives. I love how deep their relationship is and that everything about their relationship is so passionate - both good and bad things. I love that they’re parabatai and soulmates and I find the fact that their bond makes them falling in love forbidden so intriguing. I also love how well dom and matt portray them and how much research they’ve done in order to do justice to jace and alec’s relationship.
but yeah I could basically go on and on about their relationship so I’m gonna stop right here lol. the point is that I just really love jace and alec’s relationship and that’s why I ship jalec. simple as that. :)
plus how am I supposed to believe that jalec isn’t at least a little canon with all the material we’re getting? and jalec will never happen? oh but my dude I think it already has a little lol.
drunk!gansey kisses all of his friends sorry I don't make the rules ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
isnt this literally the canonical reason why gansey and blue didnt drink at the toga party tho (like obviously they were more than friends but STILL proof that drunk richard gansey cant help kissing the people he loves even when its literally a matter of life and death)
